Born in Cleveland, Ohio, on March 30, 1964, Tracy Chapman started writing songs at the age of eight and at the same time she recieved her first guitar from her mother. Thanks to an academic scholarship, she was studying high school in Connecticut, before enrolling at the Tufts University in Massachusetts. While still at college, she performed at local coffeehouses in Boston, where her talents were exposed for the first time, and thus, earned her a recording deal with Elektra in 1987. The following year she saw the release of her self-named debut album, Tracy Chapman, which fetched her three Grammys and sales that shot through the roof. Album's tracks like the multi-platinum Fast Car and the instant hit Baby Can I Hold You shortly became radio favorites and entered the UK and USA's charts in no time. Another widely acclaimed album was her 1995's New Beginning, which got carried by the hit song Give Me One Reason. Even though she has never really regained the commercial success of her debut album, Chapman continued to release music that was critically acclaimed and well-received by her fans worldwide. After the release of her last album Our Bright Future (2008), Chapman toured Europe and selected North American cities. As of today, she only stays busy as an activist, speaking and performing on behalf of various organizations.
